So, I Presume, You Also Want Him to Say Nothing About Sex? Because, You Know…

From Crooks and Liars:

Here’s some of what one of the conservative presidential hopefuls for 2016 had to say to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

Ryan, who is Catholic, was asked about Pope Francis’ recent sharp critique of capitalism. Ryan stood up for the free enterprise system as a way of alleviating poverty as well as being consistent with Catholic teaching. “People need to get involved in their communities to make a difference, to fix problems soul to soul,” Ryan said.

Ryan added, “What I love about the pope is, he is triggering the exact kind of dialogue we ought to be having.”Ryan said he did not consider Francis a Marxist, as talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh alleged. Ryan said Francis grew up under the Peronist movement in Argentina, where the state took a leading role in the economy.”The guy is from Argentina, they haven’t had real capitalism in Argentina,” Ryan said.

So…

By explicitly stating that Pope Francis should keep is mouth shut about capitalism because he has no personal experience with it…

Is Paul Ryan implicitly declaring that the priesthood – all the way up to the pope – has no place in saying anything about heterosexual sexual activity…

or that it does have a place in saying something about gay sex?

or…well, you get the idea.

Paul Ryan won’t, but I’m sure anyone reading this post will.

  1. That Jesus guy never lived under capitalism either. Sounds kinda suspect – better not listen to him.
